    Didn't fit

    So this is a custom ordered Comexim Ardea Half Cup in a 65O. I didn't get any alterations done with this one.

    Hmm. I'm not really sure where to start with this one. The materials used to make this bra were lovely. They were soft, and they didn't irritate my skin. The bow details were cute. I was a little disappointed in how dull the colors were in real life though. I was expecting more of a vibrant navy blue and pink details, so if you were debating this bra based on the colors of it via the Comexim model's pictures, you're going to be disappointed.

    On to the ... fit itself: Yikes.
    -Let's start with the straps in relativity to my frame. It's absolutely comical. I'm slender and apparently, tiny (so says my husband). The strap placement is worse than an Ewa bra. I would have to have my straps moved in at least 4 cm to even attempt to fix the glaring problem with the fit itself.
    -The cups are cut really short/shallow. Or maybe I'm just pressing that issue because my Ewa bras offer better coverage due to their lace panel added to the top if the cup. I said in the picture review that perhaps Comexim should consider doing something similar in their small band/large cup bras.
    -The cups are cut strange regardless. Their padding is geared more towards an Ewa S style thickness, but at the same time, the cut itself is halfway between a plunge and a half cup.
    -The wires used were 12inches long, while the length of the cups where the wires were located was 12.5 inches.
    -The gore doesn't tack
    -The weight of my breasts almost seem to push the bra band down.
    -Lastly, I don't even think my larger side fits into a K/O cup.

    Edit to add my ribcage is measuring 28.5inches right now.

      Wow. I'm sorry. I don't even know what to say to this, other than I'm sorry you had to spend money on this.

      Oh my! Yeah this is um, like a shelf bra? Like it belongs on top of a corset.

      The side (profile) view looks good. The front looks too shallow, insanely wide, and a bit too short for comfort for sure.

      It looks great with your Sofia under it though!! That added support from Sofia makes a big difference but is obviously not practical for daily wear.

      I feel a 60 band is really needed, but I am not thinking Comexim wires as they are will provide you with the support you need. A wire switchout may fix that, but won't solve the strap placement issue-which is clearly way too wide for this cup/band combo indeed!

      I will give Anna some credit, this does look a bit better than Kim, but isn't an ideal fit for sure. Sorry this one didn't work out for you either. :-(

      @Sovavosi We now know the 2HC isn't a better option within our range.... :-(

      Sovavosi *sigh* I should have just listened to your review, as well as realized the problems I had with Kim. I should have told Anna no haha, but I'm such an optimist sometimes. 🤣 I'm not entirely bummed, since Anna said I could return it if it didn't work out. It's just a final nail in the coffin for me. I can't order from Comexim until they fix their problem with small bands/large cups is all. Maybe they never will, and that's okay. It's hard to cater to us sometimes! I just hope she'll read my review and learn from the pictures and whatnot.

      MamaPagan Yeah it is haha. There's just a plethora of issues with the bra, really. I enjoy Sofia under it as well, but as you say, it's not practical.

      I think you're right. Maybe I do need to just switch back to a 60 band and be done with it.

      Oh for sure! The quality is better. The bra itself feels sturdier even. She really tried to fix the cup issue too, I feel. But there's a long way for her to go :)

      That's okay. Live and learn. Yeah. I'll have to just skip Comexim I think.

      You said it beautifully though, as you never know until you try, and those wondering "what ifs" are the worst. I keep doing the same thing, trying Comexim over and over again. The only style I haven't tried are the half cups and the one semi soft.
      Some day we shall gather our little group of small band/large cups and take a trip to Poland to offer our breasts to her as models for the size needs. I am thinking it's a scaling issue due to lack of bodies in our range to test them on....

      Thank you for testing these waters for us, and providing the measurements and visuals that help guide us all on our bra journeys. I personally am very thankful to you for this.

      Also, if you haven't signed up for it yet, Paypal offers a free return shipping reimbursement service on orders paid via Paypal.

      I don't know all the detais, but think you need to take a copy of the shipping label with postage amount and send it to them. I assume the link will have all the details though! (Sign up for it before you do the return.)

      That looks.... pretty damn bad.

      On the plus side this colour goes great with your skin!

      @mamapagam Absolutely. Then we'll go and see Ewa and try and explain the strap problem too 🤷🤣 And, no problem. I am excited that there were changes compared to the Kim. It's a start really. It seems like Anna is at least trying.

      Ah!! I've heard of it, but I didn't realize they made it so easy now! That's awesome!

      brasaremean Ahaha, yeah. It isn't pretty.

      I may have laughed at your second comment. You're right. At least the colors are superb 😊😏

      Yes, an Ewa visit would be included in that trip for sure!! :-D

      I’m in! I’ll start saving up for airfare and oodles of bras!

      Oh dear! That bra is a mess! Thanks for doing this review, I have been looking at that pretty fabric on Comexim, and now I know not to order an Ardea!

      Calluna woohoo!! The more the merrier :)

      @veggiechic you bet! I don't mind being a bra guinea pig. I'll do whatever I can to help our busty community out haha. It would be a real shame if we ended up buying bras that didn't work, and we didn't let everyone else know, right? :) I just don't want other people trying something I know doesn't work!
